'Response of live-oak dominated vegetation on thicketized uplands to burning in the fall 1974, spring 1975, and fall 1975 was evaluated through 1977 on the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge. Standing crop, species diversity, and botanical composition of herbaceous vegetation and density of woody plants were the major variables evaluated at various times after the burns. The areas were not grazed by domestic livestock during the study...'
